9th Grade Business: Lesson 15

Today, I was given the assignment to write about why running my own business basically guarantees me a job in the year 2030. Well, this is a pretty straight forward topic, however there are many things to consider that could be occurring in the year 2030. So, let’s get into this essay!

Owning my own business would mean that I, personally, would have a job. However, in order to keep a job I would have to hire other folks to work for me. Then, I would have to continue to pay them. Paying people would really bring my profits down, and then I would have to try harder to get people to buy my products. Then, there could be robots who can do the same thing. However, if I can manage to put something into the product that makes the customer want it from me more than from a robot. For example, if I were to play guitar, I could put soul into it, and a robot wouldn’t be able to.

In conclusion, I think that owning a business will guarantee me a job, but I can’t guarantee that I can hold the job. I can guarantee that I will be able to sell my product once I out perform robots and any other companies with the same product. Please like and subscribe for more from Homeschooled Hero!

What Virginia Should done with the Money

Hey guys, I know that you probably think that this is about the STATE Virginia. However, it isn’t about that Virginia. This is about Virginia from the book In His Steps by Charles Sheldon. I was given the assignment to write about what Virginia should have done before donating $500,000 to the newspaper editor. My name is Homeschooled Hero and I hope that you enjoy this essay, so let’s get to it!

So, in the book, Virginia donates half a million dollars to the editor of a failing newspaper. She does this to help bring the paper back to a functional position. However, I feel that there is something that she should have done before donating that money. First she should have decided if the newspaper was WORTH funding. Then she should have checked to see if her family was in need of something that would require that money. Those are the first things that she should have done.

The only reason that she should have done those things before donating the money is because if her family DID need that money, she would have given it away to a failing newspaper and basically waste her money. Now, the first step is the MOST important because it determines if it is even worth considering donating the money. If she had done some research into the paper, she would have actually seen that the editor doesn’t publish stories that would be put into a successful paper. He puts stupid things that aren’t as important as others. For example he decided NOT to publish a story that showed the railroad breaking the law. He published something else that wasn’t important at all.

It may behoove you to know that the book was a very popular book for the Social Gospel. However, the author doesn’t really understand anything how businesses like a newspaper are run. In this sense, this book is very similar to Looking Backward. There are many problems in both books, and they both center around how businesses are run. Both authors don’t really know about how a business is run, how it stays functional, and how to make money. They rely upon how they think that businesses SHOULD  be run, and that is not how the business world works at all. That is the problem with authors like Charles Sheldon, they don’t know what they are writing about. They write about how the world ought to be, instead of how it is. Then, that makes it a big problem when they try to write because it doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. I find this to be a big problem.

In conclusion, Virginia should have looked into what she was investing into. She also should have made sure that her family wasn’t in need before she donated $500,000. I think that Charles Sheldon is a good writer, but he has no clue as to what the real world is. It will never be exactly perfect, and what he sees as perfect is not really.

If you have read the book, let me know what Virginia should have done before she donated the money.

How Will Having a Blog With Lots of Content Help Me get My First Full-Time job After College?

So, at first I didn’t really understand what this question was asking me. Then, once I figured that out, I couldn’t come up with any ways to answer the question, which really bothered me. However, now I believe that I have figured it out. (I even went and asked my dad what he thought about the question to form an answer based off of how he explained it to me!!)

Having a blog with lots of content; let’s dissect this part of the question first shall we? This part is basically what tells me that I need to have lots of essays and little articles on my blog. This is pretty important, because it proves to district officials that I have actually done my school-work and then some extra pieces here and there. Now, how this will help me get a full-time job after college. This is going to help me get a full-time job after college because it will prove to the company or business that I have the skills necessary to create a proper resume. It will also help, should I decide to go into a field such as Journalism. Journalism is, obviously, a field full of writing. So, this would be a vital skill for Journalism.

I think that having a blog is important, not only because it keeps public school officials out of my parent’s hair, but because it really helps for people to develop their writing skills. My teacher, Gary North, made a very good point. He said that, “People are scared to put their writing out on the internet.” This is very true, I think that people are scared to do this, because they are afraid of being rejected as a writer, so they fear getting hurt. This is scary, but you shouldn’t just give up on writing because you are scared of being rejected. You need to accept the fact that you may not be at the peak of your talent yet, but this is to get you there. Plus, if the people who rejected you stick with you for a while, they may even see some major improvement as you continue to write. While you try to improve upon your writing skills, you could read some authors in the field that you are writing about. This is because, if the author is good, you could develop some of the writing techniques that author used when writing his or her stories. This is kind of like playing guitar. For me, when I watch somebody else playing guitar, I try to mimic some of the little things ad nuances that they do when playing, this helps to make me a better player. So, overall, the more good authors you read from that field, could make you a better writer.

In conclusion, reading other authors can make you a better writer, which will give a blog with lots of content, which will also help you to get a full-time job after college. So, overall having a full blog with good reviews and decent viewer activity can help you to get a job after college. Please like and subscribe for more from Homeschooled Hero!

My One Sentence Story Idea

Hey guys, today I am writing my story idea for English. The only twist was that it had to be one sentence long. At first I was going to go into a different reality, but he told us that it would have to be America from the 1800s. So, based on that I have to come up with something very different. So here is my one sentence story idea:

George Carnegie, the long lost brother of Andrew Carnegie, immigrates to America but is lost from his family.

In this story we will follow George as he struggles to find his way throughout America, meeting some very fascinating and important figures throughout the way. Please be on the lookout for The Lost Brother. Only on Homeschooled Hero!

My YouTube Strategy

Today I am writing about my own unique YouTube strategy for my science class. I know what most of you are thinking, “YouTube, for science? That’s crazy!” Well it is a little bit. I think that this is a good idea because, it helps to build marketable skills, which is one of the things that my teacher is helping to develop in kids my age.

Now we will get to the point. I plan to do book reviews as my YouTube channels main topic. The reason that I plan to do this is because I really enjoy reading. I am currently thinking about the consistency of my video posts. So far what I have is posting one video every two weeks. (Let me know in the comments what you think of this idea!) The reason that I decided to go every two weeks, is because that gives me time to get the book, if I don’t already own the book, read it, and then write my review.

My Target Audience is young teens, who enjoy reading, that are looking for good books that help to elevate free thought. The reason that I am doing this is because, when kids look  for books the very seldom find really good books. That is why I want to help them find the good books and steer them away from the bad books. Now, I do not mean that these books are poorly written or are bad books and should be taken off of the shelves. I mean they are not books that people often enjoy reading.

My Value Proposition is that I give people things that they can read. In other words when people are backed into corners, I give them a trap door. I am trying to give young readers good books to read and help them to determine whether or not they would enjoy the book.

In conclusion, I am trying to help young teens to find books that they would enjoy. I love reading and I would love to spread this to other people. Otherwise the art may be lost. I don’t mean that everyone will suddenly forget how to read, not at all, I mean people may lose interest in reading and then find it completely boring. I don’t want this to happen. Please help me with my YouTube idea. If you have any ideas, let me know and I will get back to you!

When we need advice are we least willing to listen to the advice given, or are we always open to it?

Today I am writing about advice, for my English class. I think that most people are open to advice until they actually need the advice. Advice, from your elders, is usually taken for granted because you get it all the time even when it’s not needed. Some people do see the value in advice and will always pay attention to when advice is given.

When you think about advice what do you think? Well, some people will think a nice chat with your mom, dad, grandparent, etc. While others may think of a long lecture about one thing that goes on to another completely different subject. I believe that advice whether from you sister that’s a single year older than you to your grandparents, it is still valuable. Advice is something that should not be taken for granted because once it’s given it cannot be taken back, unless something in the economy changes to make the statement incorrect.

Most of the time advice is given to young teenagers, like myself, who have an attention span smaller that a puppies. This is because in this day and age, there is so much technology around kids that they don’t have any single thing to focus on. That being said, teens are usually going to have plans every night and then once someone steps in to say something, it is not valued because they aren’t paying attention to the advice giver but rather the party time and their hair. This is messed up because that person has a life and feelings as well as the teen and the way that the teen blew them off is wrong because eventually the teen will experience the same thing that that person did, or something similar to it.

Another thing to think about is this, how often does the person need advice? If you need advice everyday for a legitimate reason, okay that’s a little extravagant but at least you are getting ready for your future. Now, if you need advice everyday for something stupid like what chocolate bar is the best to buy after work, that is useless and dumb.

In conclusion, I think that you should always welcome advice when it is being given. Also, if you are constantly asking for advice, you need to tone it down until it’s a legitimate thing that you need help on. To think that kids aren’t taking the advice and saving it for the future, it’s upsetting and should try to be helped. Please like or dislike and always, always, always leave comments.
